You should still be able to balance the sound better, a center channel will simply change where the higher frequencies are coming from. You will still have "too much bass." Stereo mode shouldn't sound much different than out of a center channel, when configured properly, surround just gives better spatial clarity.

Im not running a center channel on my setup and its fine. Are your speakers set right in Audyessey? With a dedicated sub, the speakers should be set to small and you should have it set to run LFE, not LFE+mains. Also, your sub should be set to about 50% when you run Audyssey. The microphone will set the initial bass level which should be pretty good. I like bass heavy so I add more bass.

BTW, I was suggesting the center channel just because it sounds better with one (IMO), not necessarily to do with the 'treble'. But maybe it's just because I'm used to it since we've been using the receiver / surround audio for so long now.

I also don't have floor speakers for the front, so that may make a big difference.

Some swear by a center channel some dont. I have been running a "phantom" center channel in which the audio is merged from 2 mains to make the center channel and it sounds good. I took my old center channel out when I built these speakers because they do fine without and the center channel would block the tv some. So I guess it all depends on the setup.
